The Arc of Essex County’s 6th Annual Uncorked & Uncapped: Wine, Beer, and Food Tasting Experience took place on Thursday, October 3rd at The Wilshire Grand Hotel in West Orange, NJ.  With more than 400 in attendance, 45+ vendors, 130+ tastings in 2 tastings rooms, and $90,000+ raised, the 2019 event was a smashing success.  

Attendees were enticed by fine wine, craft beer, hard cider, spirits, and delicious food from new and returning vendors. Crowd favorites included duck terrine from White Birch, seasonal Oktoberfest Märzen-Style Lager from Cape May Brewery, coldbrew coffee creations from Cedar Beans, carbonara arancini from The Fox and Falcon, and much more! This year, live cooking demonstrations by Town Bar + Kitchen and Stone Water elevated the tasting experience.

Musical entertainment was provided by JT Rooney and The DC Trio, both of whom graciously donated their services.  Suero Cigars rounded out the tasting experience by providing an interactive, educational demonstration of the art of cigar rolling.
